We’re excited to announce new ftrack Studio integrations with SideFX Houdini and Adobe Premiere Pro, along with a pre-release version of Toon Boom Harmony.

Recently, we launched the new ftrack Connect Framework to enhance creative industry pipelines with a modern, scalable solution for powerful integrations. This new framework simplifies the process of incorporating your DCC tools into your ftrack pipeline, complete with out-of-the-box support for Photoshop, Maya, and Nuke.

Now, we’re pleased to extend this support to SideFX Houdini and Adobe Premiere Pro—two industry-leading software solutions for 3D procedural creation and video editing, respectively. ToonBoom Harmony, the leading 2D animation app, is available via the Plugin Manager as a pre-release, and we hope to make this generally available and fully supported by the end of the year.

You can install these integrations via the Plugin Manager inside of Connect, today. These integrations let users publish their working files for review, feedback, and iteration directly from their creative apps so they can stay immersed in their creative process.

And these integrations are just the beginning—with the new Connect Framework, you can customize, extend, and adapt them to fit your unique needs.

Let’s explore the integrations in more detail.

Connected review and approval workflows

Built on the new ftrack Connect Framework, the new ftrack Studio integrations enable a smooth review and approval process. Artists can easily publish their work—whether it’s a 2D animation, an FX shot, or a video edit—directly to ftrack Studio for review, all without leaving their creative app of choice, thanks to the framework being available within the DCC.

Artists can also open previously published versions within their DCCs to respond to feedback and create the next iteration. (Please note that the Opener functionality is currently available in Premiere Pro and Houdini, with Harmony support coming soon!)
